Putting this back in.

* ''[[http://assignedmale.com/ Assigned Male]]'', a webcomic about an 11-year-old transgender girl and the different challenges and prejudices she faces as a result of it. Sounds good, right? Well, actually, the main character ends up coming across as a SpoiledBrat whose parents bend to her will at every given opportunity (keep in mind this is a very common negative stereotype of trans kids and their parents), who tries to shove the fact that she's transgender down the throats of everybody she meets (''another'' bad stereotype), [[MostWritersAreAdults and says things that make it apparent that the author has no idea how kids think, let alone how they talk]] (made especially baffling by the fact that the creator claims to be an ''elementary school teacher''). The artwork is lazy and would suffer quite badly from OnlySixFaces, if only for the fact that there is no sense of proportion in those faces. The characters are all flat and wooden and could be described better by the gender they identify as (or lack thereof; yes, there are non-binary characters) than by any sort of personality other than [[StrawCharacter straw]] or [[AuthorFilibuster mouthpiece for the author]]. The comic's ''so'' bad, many LGBT groups [[PoesLaw first thought]] ''it was a troll comic meant to make them look bad''. (The fact that the comic can be [[HypocriticalHumor startlingly homophobic, sexist and gender essentialist]], if not downright ''transphobic'' despite being supposed to be pro-trans people, doesn't help.)

A lot of the comics on this page no longer exist. Just delete the dead links and change the tense.
Added DiffLines:
* ''One-Frame Gags'', a now-defunct webcomic that ran a little under a year from September 2012 to July 2013, had terrible artwork, unfunny "gags", and [[HurricaneOfPuns way too many terrible puns]]. The only thing it had going for it is that [[Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic David Morgan-Mar]] actually wrote a guest strip for it. The creator became a ''Webcomic/SquareRootOfMinusGarfield'' and ''Webcomic/LightningMadeOfOwls'' creator after it ended and made some '''slightly''' better strips.

*** Depends somewhat on your definition of "insanity." Chris has had some run-ins with the law in these last five years, but she's also come out as transgender, and seems to have abandoned her homophobia. There are also a number of indications that she now KNOWS people hate her work, [[GenreSavvy but also realizes that they'll pay for it out of Bile Fascination.]]

* ''Webcomic/{{Lightbringer}}'' [[http://lightbringer.comicgenesis.com/d/20060315.html is a]] superhero story about a young man who lives in a crime infested city and uses his entirely-unexplained light manipulation powers to fight a cell of thugs known as Slavers. [[ArtisticLicensePhysics The light powers also somehow give him the ability to fly.]] The art itself is awful, owing to the fact that Linkara can't draw, and the story is pretty much a Frankenstein's monster of other comic book stories. Due to the admitted age of the thing, there's also a bit of skeeviness from before he became a feminist, namely with some art of a 17 year old character. Mostly considered by [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] to be an OldShame alongside the Angel Armor books, and is no longer updated.

* ''[[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Hathor_the_Cow_Goddess Hathor the Cow Goddess]]'' revolves around real-life naturalist feminist Heather Cushman-Dowdee in a cow mask and bottle-nipple hat preaching her views on child-rearing, healthcare, and public as well as long-term breastfeeding. This alone wouldn't necessarily make it a bad webcomic, but the comic only shows tolerance for [[AuthorTract Hathor's own views]] and [[{{Demonization}} demonizes anyone]] that advocates modern medicine, formula feeding, or sending your kids to school as an abusive parent. The author, essentially a hippie helicopter mom crossed with a {{SelfDemonstrating/Bizarro}} liberal [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]], has earned the enmity of many an amateur Egyptologist for re-purposing a cool goddess for her deranged views.

* ''US Angel Corps'' is an adult comic about the eponymous Spec Ops group that is infamous for its metric tons of UnfortunateImplications combined with its incredibly off-putting premise. The "plot" (and the term should be used extremely lightly) involves nothing more than scantily clad female agents being sent on missions for the government, inevitably failing (because, in the lapse of logic that this premise is rooted in, they're never given more than basic training) and then being graphically raped, mutilated and murdered, sometimes not in that order. There are no chances for these characters to be meaningfully developed, and while there ''are'' a handful of potentially-interesting elements, the comic has no interest in exploring any of them in-depth, and most scenarios are, at their cores, identical. It's just one death after the other and throws all the characters away as quickly as they appeared (although NegativeContinuity is in effect for all but one bizarre exception, [[KilledOffForReal Tamara]]). The sole redeeming quality, the competent artwork, is buried under layers of triggering content (the Angels' reactions to their predicaments are usually played too realistically for comfort, utterly fail to [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line twice]] like some other guro comics do, and are clearly meant to be ''appealing''). There's also a fair bit of implicit apologia to go along with all the rape, complete with the conflation of "automatic physical response" to "starting to enjoy it". Even if one could read all the available stories without feeling ill, there's barely any content to be found.
